Full Size Green Greenman

Email
The Greenman is the leafy figure seen peeking out from many an ancient structure throughout Europe, frequently sculpted into the design of buildings of state and even churches. With an old, wizened face that sprouts leafy foliage for hair, he has come to be revered as a deity of nature, and is sometimes associated with the horned god. Most often, he is viewed as a symbol of the powerful ability of nature to be born anew as it goes through its yearly cycle, with so many plants and animals seemingly reborn with time`s passing. This wall plaque seeks to capture that unbridled, wild power that he represents and comes as close as any still-life might. In life sized proportions the Greenman is displayed with wild eyes and wise features, with green leaves sprouting to form his hair, beard and mustache. In this portrayal he would seem almost a ferocious thing, though the kindness and wisdom can still be recognized within his features; a clear reminder of the untamed manner of all things born of nature. The plaque hangs approximately 17" long and 14" wide, providing for you the perfect ornament for your sacred space.
